For three years he commercially operated tankers in Singapore. Over 25 years he has sailed on 100 vessels, most of them sailboats, for 75,000 miles, including voyages across the Atlantic and Pacific and over 30 ocean passages to or from Bermuda. He has published four books, the latest being ROUND THE WORLD IN THE WRONG SEASON. A graduate of Boston College, he studied at Harris Manchester College, Oxford, and in Lisbon. Employed in the shipping industry in New York City, he lives with his wife and son in Westport, Connecticut.
"Eric Wiberg's ability, to unearth obscure historical facts, keeps
me in a constant state of surprise. I commend his relentless
determination to verify every detail, with local sources in
Nassau's historical community, for corroboration of his
findings.Capt. Paul C. Aranha, author, The Island Airman . . . And
His Bahama Islands Home.
Eric Wiberg has made a significant contribution to the bibliography of World War II history. J. Revell Carr, Santa Fe, N.M.
